You may not have heard about Mamma Agata, but to many, especially globe-trotting celebrities, she is Italy’s darling. She is the one person in the world that they have all agree should cook for them. During her lifetime, she has and still feeds more stars than MGM studio has ever contracted in its heyday. Celebrities like Gore Vidal, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and even non-Hollywood types like Jacqueline Kennedy have all visited her in Italy for dinner. Her cooking is, as Jacqueline once said after enjoying her mozzarella and tomato salad, “eleganza molto simplice” (elegant simplicity). Several years ago for one hour, her cooking program was one of the featured attractions at the once Annual Virginia Wine (and Food) Showcase. Chef and Sommelier Gennaro Petti and Mamma's daughter Chiara Lima, conducted a cooking demonstration, which focused on her mother’s special cooking secrets and personal stories about the rich and famous. Visiting the States, at the invitation of Joe David, she and her husband Gennaro, became an immediate star attraction at the Virginia food and wine showcase. Below is a recipe for risotto, which Chiara and Gennaro prepared and demonstrated exclusively for WUSA-TV viewers.
